Pastor Brent Girouex: Having Sex with Boy to Cure their Homosexuality

By April 6, 2011

Follow me on:

What's the best way to "save" young boys from the dangers of homosexuality? Pastor Brent Girouex in Bluffs, Iowa, has developed a novel solution: have sex with them. I guess it's a bit like forcing a kid to smoke a big, nasty cigar in order to turn him off smoking. Maybe that's even where he got the original idea. According to police, Brent Girouex gave his big, nasty cigar to numerous boys, but it didn't turn them off cigars entirely, I guess, because he had to keep going back to repeat the lesson over and over and over.

It must have been so hard for him to keep repeating his lessons like that. I suppose they should be thankful that Girouex had the stamina to keep it up.

In February, Girouex told Council Bluffs police detectives that he had sexual contact with four young men starting in 2007 in order to help them gain "sexual purity in the eyes of God." ...

Court documents indicated Girouex told investigators the most sexual contact he had was with one teen over a four-year period, starting when the boy was 14 years old. Calling the contact "mutual," he said it had occurred between "25 and 50 times" during that period. When investigators spoke to the teen, who's now an adult, he told them the number was between 50 and 100.

Three other young men who were teenagers when the incidents occurred told investigators the sex occurred at Girouex's home. All said they went to be helped with "sexual purity."

"When they would ejaculate, they would be getting rid of the evil thoughts in their mind," Girouex allegedly told detectives.

I guess those boys kept having a lot of evil thoughts, considering how many of them Brent Girouex had to "purify" and how often he had to offer his "help" to them. It seems that there are awful lot of conservative Christian pastors and ministers out there trying to offer their "help" to "purify" people of inappropriate sexual desires.

It's quite a racket that these Christian leaders have set up: convince people that some desire of their is bad, make them feel overwhelming guilt for having desires they can't consciously control, then enjoy the "purification" of those urges by acting them out over and over. Is this what they are teaching people in seminaries these days?

What on earth were the parents up to? 50+ times!! Surely they must have been aware that all was not good with the playful priest. Perhaps, given the now ruined trust that many people had in those of the faith industry employ, the parents could be excused, but really. And, it went on for years.

Your tone is highly offensive. Child rape is nothing to be taken lightly.
